I most certainly do NOT need culture. Why do I care about history and what other authors have written? Society is a creeping blanket that will smother us in our gingerbread beds! I am happy slurping down my buttered raspberry porridge while I stare at my lovely blank pages! If I have anything to write, then I will write it in my own words without any need for your historical facts and intrigue, Chancellor Wintergreen, or your passionate romance trickery, Ms. Plum Passion, or that who-ha fantasy and spells you conjure, Magician Laerornor – and certainly not those layered and mysterious who-dunnits that you manipulate, Detective Knuckletaffy! No, I do NOT need apply any literary device or keep to some specific genre at all. Life is already too difficult for us elves. Let me write my elfin stories with the exactness of science and in the format of standard operating protocol, solicit my finest work to the most stringent of publishers, and proudly see my article with my name on the finest gold-thread cloth, like my latest:
Love you guys! Truth is, I need romance, mystery, fantasy, and history in my writing. In other words, I need you all in my writing life and the gifts you offer. And, thanks for the potion, Plum Passion. Forgers Forever!
